Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner?

Thanksgiving is next on the horizon and personally it is one of my favorite holidays.  I love getting together with family, taking a look back on the previous year and just being so darn thankful we've made it to November.

Every family has their own traditions - how they dress, what they eat, if they shop or don't shop, whether or not they travel or have a quiet day inside.  That is what makes it special!  Just the perfect day to reflect and be thankful.

And I haven't even mentioned the BIG MEAL.  Which really is what stands out, right?  It's the star of the show.  Some families are all about the side dishes {green bean casserole, anyone?} and some families are all about the desserts {pumpkin pie!}.  But most families do center their meal around turkey.

That big bird gets a lot of attention!  But guess what....leftovers are a definite.  There is always some to eat the next day, which is great, but those turkey sandwiches can get boring.

I love creating new ways to use up leftovers.  I love cheese.  I love any type of fluffy, buttery dough.  And I love any meal that isn't fussy and you can literally grab and bite as you are walking on by.

These Holiday Turkey & Cheese Party Rolls fit into all of those categories.

This recipe not only showcases those brillant holiday leftovers but also CHEESE.  Who doesn't love cheese?  In any and all forms.  I've been blessed to live in the Midwest {where cheese is made and loved} and to have grown up with the Our Family brand of cheese.  I worked in a store in high school that featured this brand and I currently live in a small Iowa town that carries it.  The quality is superior.

When brainstorming a recipe surrounded {literally} by this cheese I knew I wanted to wrap it around the holidays as well.

This time of year is all about eating....whether our waistbands agree or not, it is what we do!  Surrounded by family and friends sharing food and memories.  I love this time of year.  And cheese is such a great addition to any meal - it amps up any dish - like these party rolls.  

I chose to use muenster cheese as I've always been a fan.  It is a semi-soft cheese that melts well and is smooth and easy-going.  Yes, I just called a cheese "easy-going".  It goes with anything!  Not fussy or overpowering like some other cheeses.

Just four main ingredients bring this dish together - crescent roll dough, turkey, cheese and cranberry sauce or jelly.  How easy is that?  The turkey and cheese are a bit salty and savory and that hint of sweet cranberry sauce brings it all together with a sweet punch.

The flavors are incredible!

And then, because I couldn't leave it just as that - I melted butter and garlic powder together and brushed these babies on it.  Butter and garlic make everything better!  With a sprinkling of poppyseeds at the end to make them look pretty.

Who wouldn't grab one of these while watching the big game on the Friday after Thanksgiving?  Or prehaps after a long day of Christmas shopping?  They are easy and quick and delicious.

Now, because I will get asked....

Yes, you are welcome to use regular sliced deli turkey in these.  Or any type of jam/jelly you have on hand.  Make them your own!  But do keep the muenster cheese as a staple.

A bit sweet, a bit salty, a bit melty and gooey.  Oh and how about that crispy crust of the dough?  I will not tell you how many I hand during the taste testing. 

It's embarassing.
